What is FES?

RehaMove is an FES Cycling system that allows individuals with weakness or paralysis of the legs to actively cycle a stationary bike, by stimulating the muscle with a small electrical current.

Active cycling means the individual will use their own muscle power to create force. By activating the muscle, the patient will receive immediate benefits through improved muscle tone, increased strength, reduced spasm and better circulation, alongside the many long term benefits of light cardiovascular exercise.
